So i have gotten scolded by pretty much everyone I know for not updating my blog forever. I have been seduced by something called Facebook and if i have some time to kill, i am usually on there, finding out what everyone is doing. However, several people have expressed concern and disappointment, (yes Jeff said he was disappointed) that the last post on here was several months ago! My other problem is that i got a new camera and for some reason, it is like a 12 step process to download pictures. I am gonna get a dock for it that will make it easier and faster, and we will be back in business! Just to give you an update on what we have been doing since the first of the year.....absolutely NOTHING! We finally broke away on Wednesday and are down in St George, enjoying the sunshine and NO SNOW! We are also visiting my grandparents who are in Mesquite for the winter. So... i will post pics and give a report on our trip next week when i get back in town. :)

I thought this was funny and had to share it. yesterday I was trying to do everything at once- as usual- and was juggling laundry, breakfast, and working. I put in some toast for Linc and got out the cinnamon sugar to put on it when it was done. As it was cooking, i went into the laundry room to fold some towels. When I came out, Linc looks at me and says "toast is done!". He had climbed up on the counter, got the toast out of the toaster, poured about half of the cinnamon sugar on it and was basically just licking the sugar off. I am so thankful for Lincoln being so independent and being able to feed and take care of himself when his mom is busy! :)

The drive was pretty long and windy, but some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. they say that it is "the most beautiful drive" or something like that.
Awwww. So sweet!
This was at dinner on our actual anniversary. Part of our package deal was a free dinner at this restaurant at the resort we were staying at. Well, up to $80 anyways. Everything there is SO expensive!
This was after Jeff got knocked down by a wave. We spent most of our time either SCUBA diving or snorkeling. We were underwater more than we were above. Just how we wanted it! We saw a sea turtle 2 different times. One was when we were snorkeling up the beach from our hotel at a place called Black rock. It is perfect for snorkeling and SCUBA there because the visibility is so good. Anyways, I looked to one side of me and saw this HUGE turtle swimming right for me! I moved out of it's way and was in awe as it swam by me like it didn't even know I existed! it was probably one of my top 3 things from our trip.
This was at the Luau at our hotel. We had a great time. The food was amazing! They bbq'ed some beef that Jeff LOVED! Every night after that, he could smell them cooking it and he wanted to go steal some. All in all, the trip was fabulous! A week is plenty long to be gone. We were missing the boys a few days before we came home. They were happy to see us, but had a great "vacation" of their own at grandma Nancy's, grandma Debbies, Nate & Leslie's, and Randy & Ash's. I am so lucky to have such great family members that are willing to watch the boys so we could go spend some time together for our anniversary. :)

As I am sitting here in the Honolulu airport at 12:45 am (Utah time), waiting for our 6 hour flight that will arrive in SLC at approximately 7:45 am TOMORROW, it occurs to me that this may be the first of several down sides to escaping to paradise for a week. I have a hard time sleeping on a plane, but that is just what I must do or else be a total wreck for the next week, while my 32 (yes that's right...32) year old body recovers! Not to mention the 10 loads of laundry that will awwait me once the bags get all unpacked. So for all of you that may have felt a little jealousy that you weren't coming with us, go ahead and be glad tomorrow morning when you wake up and have had a good night's sleep and aren't picking up the pieces of being gone for a week. :) I will be sure to post pictures tomorrow when I am putting off doing the laundry and reading blogs instead.

Now before you think to yourself, "Nicole has really gone too far with her obsession of dressing her boys alike every chance she gets", we did not intend on having 2 Batmans for Halloween. However, due to a wardrobe malfunction, we ended up with Dawson being Dark Knight batman and Linc was regular Batman.
Grandma Debbie bought them these suckers that have a funny mouth on the other side. They were a big hit!

We got a call from Grandma today asking us to go mini-golfing. Every time we drive past Mulligans, Dawson asks me when we are going to go mini-golfing again. The last time we went, I was carrying baby Lincoln in a Baby Bjorn carrier. So it was time. We decided to do the Haunted House course, being 2 days before Halloween and all.
Grandma and grandpa had to show us all the correct form and golf etiquette. I am pretty sure we failed at the etiquette part. Grandma and Grandpa were thrown off a bit with the little putters. They are both excellent golfers and they are used to the real putters and so me and Dawson had the advantage. We have only practiced with the mini golf ones! :) (well recently anyways) It's a good thing we weren't keeping score or else we might have made them feel bad. That might fall into the "grandparent abuse" category and we all know how serious those consequences are!!!
I was a PERFECT autumn day and great for mini-golf. We all enjoyed being outside in the beautiful weather and spending time doing something fun with grandma and grandpa! It was A LOT better than Stink-e-cheese!!!
